Apple releases first update to Mac OS X Lion


Apple has released OS X 10.7.1, the first update to Mac OS X Lion. Might be a surprise to some, Mac OS X 10.7.1 update is available via Software Update and not from the Mac App Store.

The 10.7.1 update is recommended for all users running OS X Lion and includes general operating system fixes that enhance the stability and compatibility of your Mac, including fixes that:

  • Address an issue that may cause the system to become unresponsive when playing a video in Safari
  • Resolve an issue that may cause system audio to stop working when using HDMI or optical audio out
  • Improve the reliability of Wi-Fi connections
  • Resolve an issue that prevents transfer of your data, settings, and compatible applications to a new Mac running OS X Lion
